Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and executives from the Indy Chamber will Thursday announce what is being called a new roadmap for economic development. The mayor's office says the initiative will prioritize "inclusive growth" for all Indianapolis residents.

The new strategy, according to the city, will reposition existing economic development incentive programs to "advance job opportunity for Indianapolis residents and remove barriers to employment - such as childcare, transit, and skills training - that prevent individuals from attaining and retaining good paying jobs."

Hogsett will be joined by Deputy Mayor of Economic Development Angela Smith Jones, Indy Chamber Chief Executive Officer Michael Huber, Indy Chamber Vice President of Indianapolis Economic Development Ian Nicolini, Ivy Tech Community College Executive Director of Statewide Diversity and Community Outreach Doran Moreland, and Tracy Cote, chief people officer for California-based Genesys, which has a large presence in Indy.

The announcement is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Ivy Tech Community College just north of downtown Indy. Inside INdiana Business will have more in Thursday afternoon's INside Edge e-newsletter.
